This series caused controversy even before it started, thanks to the leak of a scene featuring Made in Chelsea’s Ollie Locke killing a crocodile. There’s more in store from the 10 celebrities marooned on a Pacific island with just the clothes they’re standing in and a few basic tools.

Aston Merrygold, Dom Joly, Lydia Bright, Dawn Harper, Zoe Salmon, Josie Long, Thom Evans, Mark Jenkins and Karen Danczuk join Locke for this four-part series as part of Stand Up to Cancer.

Things get off to a bad start, with the famous faces having to call for help twice after getting into life-threatening situations in their hunt to find fresh water.
